Continental systematically invests in research and development in the fields of new technologies, alternative materials and environmentally compatible production processes. Through these efforts, we are aiming for a gradual transition to 100 percent sustainably produced materials in our tire products by 2050 at the latest. An essential material for excellent tire functionality is natural rubber. It is our ambition to source all natural rubber from sustainable origins by 2030. In this session Claus Petschick (Head of Sustainability Tires) will give insights on how Continental is committed to responsible natural rubber sourcing and how we proactively strive to minimize all environmental, human rights and social risks that we identify along our global natural rubber supply chain.
